homemade brownies

My favorite homemade brownie recipe is from the Pots Pans and Pioneers cookbook.

I have layered the dry ingredients (doubled) in jars as gifts with instructions on what to add. We add chocolate chips to those.

Cocoa Brownies

3/4 c. flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 c. soft butter
1 tsp. vanillla
1 c. sugar
1/4 c. cocoa
2 eggs
1/2 c. chopped nuts (optional)

Sift flour, sugar, salt, and cocoa. Add butter, eggs, and vanilla. Beat 2 minutes on medium speed or 300 strokes by hand. Stir in nuts just until evenly distributed. Pour batter into greased 8x8x2-inch pan and bake at 350 degrees for 20-22 minutes or until barely done.

We melt the butter (or sometimes coconut oil) in the pan they will be baked in to keep them from sticking.
